Abstract

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have enormous application in various fields such as sensors, aerospace, super capacitors and photovoltaic devices, etc., and they are extensively exploited for number of other energy and environmental applications nowadays. With the rapid development and evolution in the field of aerospace industry, the existing developed technologies do not have adequate potential to overpower the requirements and demands of the new era. Nanocomposites based on CNT have procured significant attention in recent years for their applications in aircrafts, military crafts, missile and spacecraft due to advanced properties such as thermal stability, chemical stability, huge surface area, etc. In this review, the fundamentals in the field on CNT nanocomposites with reference to nanoparticles and conducting polymers such as DGEBA, polyaniline, polythiophene and polypyrrole are discussed. The main objective of the review is to study the advancement in aerospace applications of polymer/CNT nanocomposites.
